Dear Friends, 

What a pleasure it is to offer you two great performance options in Austria in 2017. In addition to the band festival I will be leading in Vienna is the option to travel with me to Schladming to perform at the famed Mid-Europe Festival for bands. 

There will be optional individual performances as well as the combined rehearsals under my direction of around 30 minutes of combined repertoire and then the gala concert spotlighting individual bands before building to the combined band finale in Vienna. Bands then have the option to continue touring on their own through Salzburg to Munich for an additional individual performance or to come with me via Salzburg to Schladming. 

Schladming has hosted the Mid-Europe festival for many years and it is a renowned festival featuring wind bands. I am delighted to have been invited to guest conduct there again. Those bands that have traveled with me from Vienna will join again to perform individually and again as the Festival combined band in the gala concert. In addition you will have the opportunity to hear many great bands from around the world while interacting with these fine musicians. 

Since I began working with KI, we have enjoyed sensational summer festivals in Australia at the Sydney Opera House, in Italy, and, most recently, in London and Harrogate, UK; our festival program in Austria promises to be equally thrilling. Almost nothing can match the excitement of taking your band abroad to perform in stunning international venues for wildly appreciative audiences. I want to share this rare experience with as many of you as possible. Full bands are encouraged, but smaller groups of selected musicians from your band are also very welcome, focusing their performance on the combined literature. 

I urge you to consider my personal invitation to become a part of this tradition and to share in the wonderful history and culture of central Europe.

Dr. Frank Ticheli
Artistic Director & Conductor
